Title: Photogeology in Gulf Coast Exploration: ABSTRACT

Author(s): Charles W. De Blieux

Article Type: Meeting abstract


The Gulf Coast has long been noted for the absence of surface deformation and topographic expression of subsurface structure. However, with application of geomorphology as a basic principle, aerial photographic interpretative techniques have been developed for this province. The deltaic plain of the Mississippi River and adjacent coastal marsh are selected for demonstration; approach to the problem is outlined, and photogeologic criteria are described and illustrated.
